After years of “What do you want for lunch/breakfast, kids?” I finally pulled the trigger in September and made a rotating meal plan for breakfast and lunch. The plan is to stick with it until April and we will switch it up. My husband and I eat the same thing unless it isnt gluten-free(me) or he’s in the office early.
Sunday: Muffins, Fruit & Milk
Monday: Eggs, Hashbrowns Fruit
Tuesday: Baked Oatmeal
Wednesday: Egg Bake
Thursday: Baked Oatmeal
Friday: Egg Wrap
Saturday: Whole Wheat Waffles Fixings
Sunday: Crockpot Soup and Biscuits
Monday: Mac & Cheese with Peas
Tuesday: Graham Crackers & Cream Cheese/Peanut Butter, Fruit
Wednesday: Chicken Quesadillas & Raw Veg
Thursday: Grilled Cheese & Veg Soup
Friday: PB&Banana Sandwiches
Saturday: Pierogies, Sauerkraut & Raw Veg & Dip
Snacks: kids are allowed fruit, hardboiled eggs, greek yogurt, crackers or string cheese if they are still hungry. Also, we always have baking supplies and are welcome to make something like cookies.
Do you do a meal plan? Has it made your life easier? It’s definitely made my life easier!totheskydearParticipant
<p style=”text-align: left;”>I used to but after 4 closely-spaced pregnancies and health issues, too much food was going to waste because I’d wake up unable to move, or have a big muscle spasm during the day and have to lie down. Anyway, I keep a well-stacked pantry and just try to think about what I want to make early in the day so if I need to thaw meat or beans, I have enough time. :)</p>BeckyParticipant
No meal plan here….. gluten-free is what grabbed my attention.. we may have go gluten free and I am lost… do you have favorite products or recipes you’d share?Alysee123Participant
I am not a recipe follower. I usually make dinner recipes that have separated gluten compartments, so I don’t make things like lasagna but I do make tacos weekly. Tacos are easy because Old El Paso has hard taco shells or you can make your own corn tortillas. I also do a sheet pan dinner once a week: fish, chicken or sausage. If I’m thinking I put a separate grain on like quinoa or rice.
Products: Sabattos Gluten free pizza(costco carries them), Vans Waffles and Promise bread are staples for me. Great Value brand gluten-free cookies are the best.
